The Power of Permission


“The power of permission.” This is what resonated to me most that I want to share with you today. While I was attending my Co-active Coaching Program, rather than just learning the skills, I felt more growth because of the revelations I experienced. It was so powerful that I was in tears while driving home.

So what is this power of permission?

All my life I felt I did not allow myself or should I say I did not permit myself to say and be the “truth.” Why? Because of fear. Fear from finding the truth about me that its scary enough that I will not like on what I am going hear or know about that of myself. Fear of failing. Fear that I am not lovable.

Writing and internalizing this now, it helped me realize that it is ok to be fearful. Giving myself permission to even recognize that helped me to be powerful. It was the power of permission allowed me to be just authentic — not for other people but for “me.”

Giving myself permission to say “I don’t know” without feeling the guilt that I really don’t know the answer – and that’s ok. This perspective gave me permission about embracing fear as an opportunity for new learning.

Giving myself permission to “live in the moment” and allowing to find joy in that simple act. This circumstance gave me permission to love myself, and that’s ok because I’m just filling my cup of love so  I can authentically love others, my work, my dreams and my purpose in life.

So, this powerful “power of permission” has brought me a sense of peace — and that’s ok.
